Save this one for after Thanksgiving day when you aren’t sure what to make with all of your leftover mashed potatoes.
We eat a lot of mashed potatoes in our house. For starters, BL is from Wisconsin and knows his way around two foods: corn and potatoes. He also happens to make the best mashed potatoes, something he takes very seriously. He’s pretty specific on his recipe and I see no need to stray from it: skins on, mashed in the pot with plenty of butter, milk and salt. They are so perfectly creamy, I request them at least a few times a month.
To make mashed potatoes more of a weeknight food, we use The Little Potato Company creamer potatoes. They are the perfect small size, which means they cook faster than regular potatoes. They are also super creamy, making the perfect mashed potato consistency.
I used their dynamic duo potatoes for this recipe, but any kind will do. If it’s a Little Potato Company creamer potato, I can guarantee that your mashed potatoes will be incredible.
Saute together onions, carrots, celery and mushrooms, then make a quick gravy. The mushrooms are so meaty and incredible, I could eat this filling by the spoonful.
Spread your mashed potatoes on top, then cover and cook until heated through. Super simple, this is one vegan and gluten-free dinner that you’re going to want to enjoy over and over again this Winter. Enjoy!
